Nipah virus: a potential pandemic agent .........by P. Devnath
Quote: "For centuries, zoonotic diseases have been responsible for various outbreaks resulting in the deaths of millions of people. The best example of this is the current coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Like severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus, Nipah virus is another deadly virus which has caused several outbreaks ........."
The pandemic potential of Nipah virus by Stephen P & Luby
"Outbreaks in Bangladesh and India have been characterized by frequent person-to-person transmission and the death of over 70% of infected people. Characteristics of Nipah virus that increase its risk of becoming a global pandemic include: humans are already susceptible; many strains are capable of limited person-to-person transmission; as an RNA virus, it has an exceptionally high rate of mutation: and that if a human-adapted strain were to infect communities in South Asia, high population densities and global interconnectedness would rapidly spread the infection. ........"
Quote from supersaiyan3: "These sort of zoonotic virus normally cannot spread very far, don't be worry unless you are a pig farmer."
Quotes from medical journals: "In Bangladesh and India, the involvement of pigs as the virus vectors and the impact of these animals on the scale of infection have not been observed (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], 1999; Thakur and Bailey, 2019). On the other hand, the presence of NiV in people who did not declare contact with pigs was an incentive to search for other potential virus hosts that could pose a threat to humans. Among the various animal species (birds, bats, pigs, and dogs) tested after the epidemic in Bangladesh, no virus was detected in them, and antibodies were found only in bats, which confirms that they could be a source of accidental infection (Hsu et al., 2004). Although NiV has been shown to infect dogs and cats ......"
Y0u see - 8% of the mammalian cell genome is represented by endogenous retroviruses (ERVs), thus inheriting the ancient germ-line cell infections by viruses ( one of the simplest facts that are not taught in takfit schools)
